Here’s a tip: Make sure you keep singing when the fireworks go off, and don’t let the smoke and falling glitter distract you. I should mention that this tip is just for if you win “American Idol.”
The ESPYS have been held at the Nokia Theatre since 2008. Notable hosts have included Justin Timberlake, Samuel Jackson, Seth Meyers, Rob Riggle and Jon Hamm. Not a bad starting five.
